> Safari will be to add these references to my bookshelf and lighten my
> load."

> user group members. To "Go on Safari," any of your members who sign up
> for our Safari 14-day free trial can send comments on their

> to receive fun stuff from O'Reilly (T-shirts, book bags, or other
> surprises). If a member of your user group is selected, your group
> receives free gifts, too. Whatever the individual member receives, your

> ***Writing for O'Reilly
> We're always looking for new authors and new book ideas. Our ideal
> author has real technical competence and a passion for explaining
> things clearly. We're happy to work with first time authors, and
> encourage inquiries about virtually any topic. However, it helps if you
> know that we tend to publish "high end" books rather than books for
> dummies, and generally don't want yet another book on a topic that's
> already well covered.  For more information, please check out:

> administrators, it's a threat. Dru Nelson recently had his network
> attacked by spammers. He explains the various defenses he considered
> for protecting against future attacks.

> interface is a contract that defines the signature of some piece of
> functionality. Throughout the .NET framework, interfaces are used to

> iSight? Actually, quite a bit. In this first installment of an ongoing
> series, Derrick Story shows you how to make professional-looking
> QuickTime movies with just an iSight and some very inexpensive
> software.  http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2003/07/01/isight.html
